president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today's washington bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this t

1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility execu
this means, next two or three weeks after the attacks, the obama administration and state department and inteleto a certain degree blamed a movie knowing very well it was a coordinated attack on the consulate andanex and this information proves it was a massive cover up. >> steve: you know, gretch, alluded to this leading into peter. it is a drip, drip, drip of new information coming out and it would be a bigger story if the media pecked tup. but hurricane sandy came along. >> gretchen: they were not covering it more. >> steve: they had stuff in the washington post and daily beast and mr. lakey is after it, but we may never know what really happened. and the other big story hurricane sandy turning more deadly . death toll at 90 can that number could climb. four and half million people are still without electricity. most of them in new york and in new jersey. one of the hardest places hit was staten island, new york. flood waters fill would homes and strong winds ripped the homes off of foundation and there are bodies in the water and have you seen fema out there? anais live this morn

chris christie and president obama toured the state's battered coast. they stopped at a community center, where at its peak, 200 people found shelter. 50 still remain. a political odd couple, for sure. in the past, they've traded barbs. now, they must cooperate at chief executives and they heaped praise on each other today. >> it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do. >> i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive, he's been aggressive and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so, i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. >> reporter: political aside, they will be judged. everyone in this situation will be judged by results. alone the jersey shore, there were dedicated disaster response teams just beginning the enormous task ahead. and more rescues of the stranded. you all right? but we saw only a few gas crews out here. they ha
, florida, ohio, virginia. obama is winning in all three of those states now and by some margin, number one. number two, the job approval rating has been up over 50% now for four months. >> dana: that is not accurate. >> andrea: another thing, after all the negative ads, bob, mitt romney's favorability jumped up higher. the negative advertisements to paint him as a felon, bully and tax evade dor haven't worked. >> bob: his momentum stopped last week. >> andrea: how do you see that? early voting -- >> bob: wait. early voting -- >> andrea: significantly gone in his favor. don't give me that. early voting was so prominent for president obama. and liberals took the network touting it in 2008. >> bob: we'll talk about this after tuesday. >> eric: one more number came out today, unemployment, disturbing. among blacks 14.3%. jumped again. >> dana: the closing argument -- >> eric: very funny. >> dana: sorry. hel >> eric: they are telling us that cbs is announcing that the new york city marathon is officially -- >> dana: i was just going to say that. we're done. several developments on the libya ter
, here is why, the numbers, iowa, the small state, sticking with obama, he is up by six in the latest poll, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, as part of the obama firewall, romney would like to get it, still trails by three points president t look at new hampshire, while the president trails by two, new hampshire looks like the state that will go romney, romney's economic numbers are better than the president, and the president's job approval rating is less than better there. but i'll show you the crucial state ends up sitting here as ohio, if you look at these numbers here. in the road to 270, the missing ingredient is ohio, brian. >> all right, as we'll be discussing, something tells me, tuesday night, chuck todd at the board, as we continue along the way. why visitors to new york won't be able to visit one of the great icons, for quite a while. as our own richard engel found out earlier today. as lines grow longer, his pain continues to linger. but after a long day of helping others, he gets some helpful advice. just two aleve have the strength to keep back pain away all day. toda
happened in that state. a month ago, maybe it was two months ago you told me barack obama was going to win, ohio. you said that things have now changed dramatically in the swing state of ohio. where do you stand tonight, sir? >> sean hannity, this state has flipped from the blue column not red column for three reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom.
. the question is where do things stand exactly in the battle ground states? the obama campaign has been insistent that they continue to have leads in enough battle ground states to win the election. the romney campaign insists that they are in a position to be able to overtake the president in a number of these states. so, we're playing in part a game of spin. somebody is going to be proven right or wrong. we know that some of these states have tightened up from where they were a month ago. i think that as susan said part of the issue is who is going to be able to get their voters out at this point, under what could be some difficult circumstances? >> woodruff: susan, how are you reading these polls right now? >> i'm struck over and over again by the damage that president obama did to his campaign in that first debate. it's like your mother always told you, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. in this pew poll that is just out, more than a third of voters said their impression of governor romney was improved in that first debate. we know from the usa today gallup po
on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did congressman ryan do? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of the
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
paul ryan's home state. the polls have been kind of all over the map there where obama had a big lead earlier and then it tightened. certainly paul ryan is helping in wisconsin. it is such a political state this year with the scott walker recall and republicans winning that. of those states i think wisconsin is the best shot for republicans and, you know, pennsylvania, usually goes to the, at the presidential level it goes to the democrat but, you know, we'll see. you know, you look back at 2008 primary between hillary clinton and president obama, hillary clinton thumped the president though the president did easily did defeat john mccain in 2008 in pennsylvania. jon: let me take you back into some of those fox news polls with some surprising numbers at least to me. one of them is the question, when asked, what best describes how the obama administration has handled radical muslim terrorists? 55% of americans say they think it was too soft. now this is a president who constantly talking about how, you know, under his administration we got usama bin laden. 55% say too soft on that. wha
: latest polls show the president obama's lead shrinking in that blue state. here -- good morning to you. >> morning. >> gretchen: what do you make of david axelrod. is the mouse statch on. >> if romney win in minnesota. i would like hoim to david axelrod to come and we'll shave it for him. >> gretchen: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedic
in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pennsylvania, they got a chance there? yes. is it likely? >> feels like they're looking for more

of the swing states. that's going to be the key is that election is one week from today. obama's people are on the ground and going to be going door to door and getting the vote out. >> one thing to think about here is the undecided has already broke before the storm. had this storm come a week earlier, it could have seen an impact. romney went over 50 and that tells us that the undecided had already broken. they are not likely to break back again. >> how is the president going change the numbers. a lot of polls have romney up a point. >> it does not matter. those are weighted on who is likely to vote. there's some questions on that. the polls that matter is ohio, florida and virginia and, you know, even wisconsin and iowa as well. those are the ones that if obama can hold the midwest and that's what he is trying to hold. if he can hold that there's no way romney can win. >> it looks like romney will take ohio, florida and virginia. >> that's a dream. >> if he does that and he takes colorado too and iowa, all of those things are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election.
, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take halloween candy away from any children of obama supporters that they know tonight. he suggested it. i think the idea was he said that obama is a redistributionist, and so you can scare kids and their obama-supporting parents about redistribution if you steal the kids' candy. that was the tenor of the romney campaign today. even as they told the press corps that they were going to be very respectful and nonpartisan and refrain from attacking the president today. it was just a remarkable, remarkable day. a remarkable decision. i mean, president obama is expected to restart his campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherw

[cheers and applause] an
's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
. >> we are following several big stories today with five days left until the election president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail. doug luzader has the lathes on the next moves plus peter doocy is following the attack on libya including new reports about a dire warning the state department received ahead of the 9-11 attacks. anna kooiman live in lower manhattan she is following the cleanup from super storm sandy. that's our top story. people slowly resuming their daily routines but more than 6 million preem main without power mostly in new jersey and new york. it could be weeks until some see the lights turned back on. the death toll from sandy is up to at least 74. that number is expected to keep climbing as workers comb through rubble, fallen trees and flood waters. they are helping these families get out of their homes in hoboken, new jersey. it shows a dramatic rooftop rescue in staten island, new york. saving 5 adults and one child who were trapped. anna kooiman joins us live with the latest. >> definitely on a windy thursday morning. good morning everyone. andre
the primaries. but in every single swing state, the obama campaign has two, three times the number of offices in the states to deploy volunteers that romney has. but a very underreported and underappreciated phenomenon that's going on in these battleground states is that the obama campaign also has air superiority. we so often look at what's being spent. but if you're sitting in your living room, if you're a swing voter, what's being spent doesn't really matter to you. it's what you're seeing. and c-mac calculated that in the last week in these battleground states, the obama campaign had more than twice as many spots on the air as the romney campaign did. so for every obama campaign ad that you see in ohio or virginia, you're going to see half as many romney ads. 17,000 romney ads to 36,000 obama ads. even if you count in all the outside groups that are spending, there were still 15,000 more ads with the democratic message. another thing we calculated, positive/negative. mitt romney ads, 99% negative in these battleground states. the 1%, there were a couple spanish language ads, and there was
